Reflections for Deputy Sheriff James Joseph Mulay

Dad I love you man. I wish I was able to get the time with you. I’m working so hard to make you and mom proud which is my biggest goal in life. I hope you can hear my prayers because I just want you to know that I’m always thinking of you and doing this for you.

Jim I know you would find this funny I ordered a memorial bracelet for you and just happened to be sitting here looking at it and realize they put the wrong month on the bracelet. I think about you and miss you everyday and continue to try to live my life the best that I can with what you taught me you are an amazing friend and mentor. Rest easy old friend.

Just sitting here and as usual was thinking about you and that night. It is weird not seeing your memorial sign up while they are doing the construction. Rest in peace old friend.

15 years today. Where does the time go, it feels like we lost you yesterday. Only our age and the age of your boys tell the real story. Watch over all of us.

Though the pain is still in my heart, the edges have dulled with the wearing down of time. Instead of a sharp edge that bled there is now only bruises on my soul. The wounds imparted on that May night appear to heal, but in appearance only. Those scars are still there buried away in my soul and will never leave me. Nor do I want them to.

Thank you for your heroism.

Thinking of your loved ones today, (many of whom I've met), as they remember that early morning, ten years ago, when they're lives were forever changed.

It has been almost 10 years, yet it feels like yesterday.
We still shed tears and miss you and your boys so much.
I never knew I could hurt so bad and for so long. Give us a sign for I know you are here watching over us. May peace be with you.
